The University of Oregon Libraries will host a free two day symposium on James Tiptree, Jr. (Alice Sheldon) on December 4-5 on the Eugene campus. Oregon has recently acquired Tiptree’s literary papers. Hugo Award-winning author Julie Phillips will speak, as will Ursula K. Le Guin, Suzy McKee Charnas, and David Gerrold, all of whom carried out correspondence with Tiptree.
This year’s inductees into the Science Fiction Hall of Fame have been announced. The Hall of Fame will be part of the Icons of Science Fiction exhibit at the Experience Music Project Museum when it opens on June 9.
